I was thinking about the safe renegotiation case. Currently with the
defaults the client behavior is to drop the connection to servers that
do not advertise safe renegotiation... This is quite an inconvenience.
How do you think of instead of failing disabling renegotiation for this
session? I think this will prevent a lot of people from completely
disabling safe renegotiation and only disables the part of the protocol
that isn't secure..
